HARRISONBURG, Va. - Despite 11 saves from senior goalkeeper Jocelyn Papciak, the Tigers (5-6-0, 0-3-0) were unable to get their first Colonial Athletic Association victory of the season and suffered a 1-0 loss against defending CAA champion James Madison (5-4-2, 2-1-0) in overtime at the JMU Soccer Complex on Thursday evening.

It marked the Dukes' second win in the last three games while the Tigers dropped their fourth straight game.

Sophomore forward Lauren Wilson scored the game's only goal in the 98th minute when she scored her fourth goal of the season on a 23-yard shot to the left corner. It marked Wilson's team-leading third goal of the season.

While Papciak led the Tigers by recording her second 10-save effort of the season, junior forward Cheyenne Skidmore and freshman midfielder Kaitlin Brooks each recorded two shots as the Dukes outshot Towson by a 25-7 margin.

Redshirt freshman goalkeeper Kate Courter made three saves en route to earning her fifth shutout of the season, which is tied for the most in the CAA.

The Tigers, who finished a five-game road trip on Thursday, will return to the Tiger Soccer Complex on Sunday afternoon to face Virginia Commonwealth at 1 p.m.
